High School Students Learn About Air Traffic Control Careers


Published March 28, 2012


A group of ninth-grade students from San Mateo High School, Calif., were given a unique opportunity to transfer problem-solving skills from the classroom to the real world.



NASA and the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) hosted a field trip packed with authentic air traffic control experiences for the students at the FAA's Oakland Air Route Traffic Control Center in Fremont, Calif.



The two-hour field trip was part of NASA and the FAA's partnership in promoting science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) education and related careers using a NASA education project called "Smart Skies." The project uses the theme of air traffic control to connect mathematics, problem solving, and decision-making skills to the real world.
